Sorry I missed reunion but I heard a good time was had by all! Please contact with photos from the reunion so I can send out info in our newsletter and post on the website. Photos can be sent to me via Dropbox, here is link to dropbox: this should take you right to the folder for DHS 1967 photos. Just drag and drop your photos there. If that doesn’t work for you email photos to as attachments but this will take much longer. Better to use dropbox.

Welcome to the OFFICIAL Danbury High School Class of 1967 web site. When I realized that we have been out of High School for over 50 years (YIKES, that's a long time!) and tried to find a web site for our class on the Internet, I was disappointed to discover that we did not have one. I have never been notified of any past class reunions so I decided to put together an official web site for our class in hopes that it will be a good tool to use in planning our reunions. I, for one, have completely lost touch with everyone I went to school with so I figured this would be a good way to help folks get back in touch with one another and perhaps renew some old friendships.

Mike MarinaroI started this project in January of 2004 and soon realized that it was a huge undertaking! It is a work in progress and I will gladly give of my time to make this a GREAT web site that our class can be proud of. This is your web site, so let me know what you would like to see here and I will do my best to make it happen. Your comments and suggestions are welcome. I need your help... so send me some recent pictures so I can post "Now and Then" photos and we will be able to recognize each other at our reunions. Don't be shy... I'm sure we have all aged very gracefully! You can e-mail me at:

Many thanks  to Jo-Ann (Joseph) Donovan,  Starr (Murphy) Herscovitch and Michael Zarour for their help with this website; also Elaine (Lagarto) Miller from the DHS Class of 1971 for her help in getting this project started. She saved me many hours of research time by offering me tips and suggestions from her experience in building the website for her class! Thanks also to David Siegelbaum who pioneered the first class website with his DHS Class of 1968 site. His advice was also very helpful with this undertaking.

This video retrospective was shown at the DHS Class of 69's 40th Reunion in September 2009. It was produced by Peter Stassa, a member of the Class of '69 and owner of Davideo Company, a video production firm located in Framingham, MA. A full listing of the songs featured appears in the closing credits. Enjoy!

This is a  fantastic video tribute, not only to that particular class, but to the Sixties in general.

Anyone who was in high school during that era will be able to identify with it.
